iPhone useless on Verizon. I just got a call from my daughter (iPhone on Verizon) and she wanted to know where she was so I simply said "hold on honey I will use find my phone and locate you" WRONG!!!!!!! *Because you can't surf and talk at the same time on Verizon I could not locate her until she hung up. Switching to AT&T. I can't believe how bad the iPhone has made Verizon look. Picking CDMA was the worst choice Verizon ever made.

This is true, but I've found the voice quality and reception to be so much better than any GSM phone I've ever used. For the few number of times I've ever needed to talk and surf at the same time, I'd rather have the better reception and voice quality (personally). I can always call the person back, it's not that difficult to dial - and I'm sure they'd rather me do that anyway instead of having to hear my fingers tapping around the screen.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

They didn't "pick CDMA", they've always been it and thus NO multitasking as on AT&T's network.

You're the first person I've ever encountered who was on Verizon and didn't know this about CDMA.
